Scouting Report
Assets: He's the true center NBA teams always covet: a super-long rim protector who uses his amazing wingspan to constantly reject shots. He's additionally a strong rebounder with good hands and anticipation, and shows the nimble mobility to be a starter. While raw, his shooting stroke is fluid and sound. Plays far above the rim.
Flaws: A significant lack of bulk and muscle on his frame presents obvious issues for him competing against stronger NBA big men. While fundamentally sound he's not a reliable shooter yet from the perimeter or free throw line. Additionally, he can be less foul prone and pass the ball more.
Career Potential: Towering, super-long center with the tools to be a defensive powerhouse.
